A Dickson grocery story and a Mexican restaurant are the latest victims as police continue to deal with an increase in the number of businesses being burglarized. Dickson police report burglars hit Chappell’s Hometown Foods on Highway 70 East and Las Fajitas Mexican Restaurant on Highway 46 within a week. Around $400 in cash and a 51-inch flat screen television were taken from Las Fajitas overnight on March 14. An undisclosed amount of cash and rolled change was stolen from Chappell’s at Colonial Village overnight March 20. Police report a rear door was pried open and phone lines were cut to disable the grocery store’s alarm system. More than 20 business burglaries have been reported in Dickson since the first of the year. Police said they have stepped up patrols during the periods in which most of the burglaries are believed to have happened, including putting detectives in unmarked cars overnight. Police believe several of the burglaries, possibly as many as 16, can be connected to a suspect who was found dead last month in a vehicle in a Nashville parking lot. That suspect was identified by several people as being the man seen in surveillance video at Mazatlan Mexican Restaurant where cash, liquor and four televisions were stolen Feb. 16.
